Poetry that frees the soul

Poetry that frees the soul | Cristina Domenech
TED Talk | 16th January 2015

“It’s said that to be a poet, you have to go to hell and back.” Cristina Domenech teaches writing at an Argentinian prison, and she tells the moving story of helping incarcerated people express themselves, understand themselves – and glory in the freedom of language. Watch for a powerful reading from one of her students, an inmate, in front of an audience of 10,000. In Spanish with subtitles.”

It is a brilliant and sensitive story of finding your freedom through the use of words and language. It is remarkably impressive and thought-provoking. I highly recommend taking the time to listen to Cristina Domenech speak. You will learn if you are already a poet or just interested in understanding how to be free through the writing of poetry. – jk
